Estee Lauder Wild Fire Pure Color Lipstick

Estee Lauder Wild Fire Pure Color Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deep orange with a hint of coral; it’s not your typical orange–it has more depth and interest to it.  It’s not a neon orange, but this shade is certainly vibrant.  It’s opaque in color coverage with a slight glossy finish.  It really has impeccable coverage, though; very rich and requires no layering–one swipe and voila!

MAC Capricious Lipstick

MAC Capricious Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a rosy plum with subtle gold shimmer. MAC describes it as a “fanciful rose plum,” and it has a lustre finish. Lustre finishes are “demi-sheer with wet-look lustre finish … Very slick … Makes lips look soft, smooth, ultra-moist.”

theBalm Shady Lady Vol. 3 Eyeshadow Palette

my thoughts on the formula: With the exception of Guilty Gwen, these eyeshadows are soft, silky smooth, and packed with pigment. They apply evenly, blend out beautifully, and aren’t powdery at all (sometimes a side effect of really soft eyeshadows). The formula is the same as the individual eyeshadows–no skimping or cutting corners.

Dolce & Gabbana Bon Bon Lip Gloss

Dolce & Gabbana Bon Bon Lip Gloss ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a pale, milky cotton candy pink with ultra-fine shimmer. It’s semi-opaque, and with its creamier finish, it does settle into lip lines, which I did find was noticeable even from afar. I would recommend wearing a light pink or nude lipstick underneath to minimize the lip gloss settling into the lines.

MAC Lightfully Bright Lipglass Swatches, Photos, Review

The Lightfully Bright Collection contains four skincare products (which I am not currently reviewing, since skincare requires 6-8 weeks of testing and I already decide on what to try 3-4 months in advance to plan accordingly) along with four lipglass shades. Each lipglass retails for $14.50 and comes in standard MAC packaging. The shades include: Astro Cool (light lavender with pink pearl), Atmospheric (pink with blue pearl), Ethereal (pale blue with pink pearl), and Outer Space (white with pink pearl).
